On Tuesday, “RIP Kayne West” started trending on popular micro-blogging site Twitter after a bogus report popped up on image-based bulletin board 4chan.org claiming West had died in a car accident in Los Angeles.

But not long after the hoax became the top Google search in the U.S. did West’s girlfriend Amber Rose put the rumors to rest.
